Summary0001049: Automatically remove duplicate note-offs

I was wondering if it would be possible to add a feature that deletes all rest notes from a channel. Like you right-click the channel and it comes up with an option to remove all rests from the channel.

Has the bug occurred in previous versions?
Tested code revision (in case you know it)

What are "rest notes", and what is the use case for this?

the note rests like these in the image uploaded are what I'm referring to. Working with long songs that have unneeded note rests in a channel can get to be a pain after a while so I'm wondering if it would be possible to add an additional option to the context menu to remove all note rests from the channel.

Those things are called Note-Offs, not Note Rests. Since playback in a module is not necessarily linear (there are commands such as pattern jumps and pattern loops), it is impossible to automatically remove Note-Offs in a non-destructive way in the general case. It's not that simple really.
However, I'm sure it would be possible to implement a special-case script for this (which would not work with all modules) once scripting is in place.
